The general ASIC (application-specific integrated circuit) design flow is discussed. Critical management milestones in the flow requiring judgement, action, or decisions are isolated and discussed. Key prerequisites that should be addressed as the designer moves from step to step in the flow are also discussed. The ASIC design process has a well established flow that is easily understood and managed. The techniques discussed can be adapted to most companies. Some companies will emphasize certain management milestones over others, depending on how many devices they have designed, the complexity of the devices they are attempting to design, the organization under which the CAE (computer-aided engineering) will be accessed and operated, and the relationship with the ASIC vendor
